Cheap Mini Bus from Pasay Taft to NAIA Terminal 3

Transportation cost in the Philippines is increasing every year because of rising oil prices and other commodities. It is important to find ways on how to save money even if it is small.

Yesterday, we tried to ride in a mini-bus from Pasay Taft to NAIA terminal 3 because it is much cheaper than riding a taxi and a lot more comfortable than riding a public bus. We don’t know that there is an airport service for all those travelers and employees who want to ride a cheaper form of transportation going to Terminal 3.

We only heard this transportation from our friends who frequently ride in this bus that you can go to terminal 3 without paying for high fare. The cost for a one way ride to NAIA terminal 3 from MRT Taft, Pasay is just P20 per person. When we ride the taxi last time we went to Davao, the fare cost us P90.

It is hard to spot the shuttle bus because there’s no signage in front of the bus, the only thing I notice is the letter “HM” in front of it.

The terminal of the mini bus is located at the backside of McDonalds MRT Taft. There is a small path going to the back and you can see jeepneys from there going out. If you want to know the location of the terminal, you can view the snapshot below.

The bus is air conditioned and it is clean. You will pay through a man who will collect the payment inside the bus. Make sure you have smaller bills to avoid hassles.

yes, sir, i also patronize this shuttle service originally for the working staff of NAIA 3. last time i patronize this, the fare was P20.00 one way; but if you have plenty of luggage, a taxi is advisable. BTW, your blog is very, very helpful; God bless you and your family

Hi Willy,

Thanks for visiting. Yeah you’re right if you have luggage, it’s better to ride a taxi.
